Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts

This is another recipe that I had pinned from Rock Recipes.  Oh was GOOD!!  This was my first time to ever fry anything.  We don't normally eat like that, but I will definitely bend the rules for this!  I know it looks like a lot of ingredients, but it really isn't bad.  You have most of this stuff in your pantry!
Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts
4 large boneless chicken breasts (place the chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap and using a meat mallet, pound to 1/2 inch thickness
Sift together:
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons pepper
2 tablespoons ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground thyme
2 teaspoons ground sage
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
(The recipe says this mix makes enough for two batches and you can freeze half of it. I halved it and still had a ton!)
Egg wash:
whisk together 4 eggs and 8 tablespoons water
Honey Garlic Sauce:
In a medium saucepan add:
2 tablespoons olive oil
3-4 cloves minced garlic
Cook over medium heat to soften garlic, but don't let it brown, then add:
1 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon pepper
Simmer for 5-10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and then dip in the flour/spice mixture to coat.  Then, dip in the egg wash and then dip in the flour/spice mixture again.  Press to coat.  Heat a skillet just below medium with a half inch canola oil covering the bottom.  Fry gently about 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown.
 Dry chicken on a wire rack for a couple of minutes before coating in the garlic honey sauce.  Serve over rice or noodles.

Seriously yummy stuff here!!  Enjoy!  :)
